Inecom Entertainment Co. says its new film “Westinghouse” will be available on DVD in stores on April 8.
The feature-length documentary is about the life of George Westinghouse: his companies, legacy, personality and achievements. The American industrialist is positioned as the only man who would go up against Thomas Edison, and win, according to Inecom.
“His victory over Edison during the Battle of the Currents set the stage for the entire future of electric power and the Westinghouse air brake is considered one of the most important inventions in history,” said the company.
“Automobile shock absorbers, railroad signaling and the modern day weekend all owe their existence to the man who Andrew Carnegie called ‘A genius who can’t be downed.’”
“Westinghouse” was filmed in cooperation with the George Westinghouse Museum and features footage, industrial films and photos previously filed in Westinghouse archives.
Preorders for the film are being taken through Internet retailers such as Amazon.com.
